We woke up in Lunenburg, NS and went on a nice walk. Cari and Sue Dietrich then did some fun shopping and then drove the rented car to Shelburne, NS. John and I took the boat to Shelburne and had a terrific time along the coast exploring.

The water was very calm except for long rolling 3-4 foot swells. Here we finally see another power boat. The only one we will see all day except for 2 row boats with kicker engines. Not a lot of boat traffic anywhere along the coast except right around the larger towns.

The fish were calling to John, who had not fished since he was a boy. Here John is bringing up a haddock from about 80 feet down.

The Shelburne Yacht Club and Marina. A very nice, full service facility! It's so nice to find good docks with plenty of 30 amp power, fresh water on the docks and very nice facilities inside. This is a great place to stay.
